Skidbladni is a second, shorter release by Akashic Crow's Nest. The concept here is dream logic, temporal dislocation, and auditory hallucination. The music is constructed entirely from the output of an image synthesizer (which turns pictures into sounds), with effects added, but no other instruments or samples. Skidbladni. A ship made by the dwarfs, large enough to hold all the gods, but which could be folded together like a sheet of paper, and put into a purse when not required for use.

Hypnotic, entrancing, and strangely cohesive. These sounds form pictures in your mind. Excellent for meditation, sleeping, and other kinds of inward journeys.

A beautiful, mesmerising journey that percolates nicely in the ears and in the mind.
